south developing tonight -- a huge shock today for the one billion catholics around the world. pope benedict is retiring. something a pope hasn't done for nearly 600 years. the 85-year-old cites age.and fatigue. it's not what the cardinals called together today had expected to hear from their pope. benedict the 16th - saying he's just not up to the job anymore and is stepping down feb. 28th. the pope's brother says benedict actually made the decision nearly a year ago. after trips to mexico and cuba. he's nearly 86 and seems increasingly frail. still - a pope retiring is almost unheard of -- this is the last man to do it -- gregory the 12th - in 1415. benedict became pope in 2005.succeeding john paul the second. he may be worn down in part by controversy. almost from the start - he's been criticized for being part of the church hierarchy more worried about its reputation than the sexual abuse of children. as a german bishop in the 80's - he directly helped shield a priest who had abused children. and in 2001 - as a cardinal put in charge of dealing with the growing controversy - he wrote a letter ordering u.s. bishops - under pain of excommunication - to never tell law enforcement about sex abuse cases. telling them to be "restrained by perpetual silence." other have been critical of the pope's conservative views on issues like contraception and gay rights. the retired pope won't be involved in naming a successor.still he appointed more than half the cardinals who will be making that decision. church observers expect the next pope to continue his conservative tradition. it's the college of cardinals which picks a new pope. they're expected to get together quickly to find a new leader for the troubled church. today -- kron4 visited local congregations -- and got their reaction to the pope's sudden resignation. san francisco's roman catholic archbishop, salvatore cordileone. released this statement: quote - "those of us who know him, and who have watched his whole life unfold in service to god, can see that that this decision down. was motivated own di best serves t the the sun out around the bay area. but -- don't let it fool you -- it's chilly out. and it's going to even colder overnight. im here in the weather center with jaqueline bennet. developing right now -- the aftermath of that huge monster storm in the northeast. the clean-up is underway, but the damage is already done. that video -- coming up at

the company's been struggling with a limited supply - thanks to increased demand for bourbon, around the world. the sweet taste has proved appealing to customers particularly in emerging markets like india - which has been driving growth in the liquor business. maker's mark says the change will ensure there's enough bourbon to go around. in the meantime, the company plans to expand its distilleries and increase production to make sure its customers do not go thirsty. i'm zain asher in new york. >> coming up in the sharks, they tried to defend, against a blue jackets and also the warriors having new uniforms.
